De Trafford Wines

David Trafford is probably the Cape’s most respected and influential self taught winemaker. An architect by profession and married to an artist, he makes his wines in a remote part of Stellenbosch on a hillside vineyard of only 5 ha at the end of a long dirt track. Wines are handmade and left to nature as far as possible and left to nature with little of the mod cons associated with larger wineries. His wines have a sense of place reflecting deep clay soils and abundant sunshine.
75% of the small output (3,500 cases) is red, the balance Chenin Blanc with tiny amounts of the very rare straw wine. The white wines features Rita’s artwork. David is one of the best and such a nice guy...
